Thanks for the update, and enjoy the Expo :)

I'll be thinking of you guys as I sit in my department meetings this week :P

Unfortunately I can't join the Zoom session this week. My department is headed out Wednesday afternoon to do a team building activity.

For the 8 output ports, what is the max size (gauge) of wire that will fit in them?

Thanks

18 fits for sure. Need to test bigger gauges. They are same connectors used on Falcon controllers.

David ordered a couple of Distro boards the other day. What kind of shipping time could I expect?
Thanks
Robert

Really really dumb question, what would be an application for these ports?  I'm trying to figure out where I could use these in a display...

Power injection to multiple spots. One power supply input. 8 fused power outs.

How far off that board is too much for effective power injection.

If you use heavier gauge wire, you can go a long ways. 14ga would let you go 15 to 20 ft. 12ga would go a lot farther.

I'm using 16ga (spt1) but more injection points because it keeps the current lower per wire.
